|Fun floral outside. Light denim inside. Could be reversible but I added buttons. See caption of next photo.|
I based my pattern loosely off of Steph Chow's Simple Toddler Pinafore Pattern. Her pattern does not include a seam allowance so I cut an additional 1/2 inch around to potentially make up for my two fabric not lining up exactly. Her pattern is for 18 month so I increased the length for my two year old and extended the strap length.
|Large wooden buttons on the shoulder to hide part of the ugly join - I had to seam rip a couple times as I tried different ways to join the shoulder straps so they turned out not so pretty. Ignore the stray threads.|
|This one I didn't extend the original pattern yet so it's more top length than tunic or dress length.|
|"Mommy, my basil plant is REALLY thirsty" says Little Miss E before watering the flowers on her new top.|
So after this first one, I HAD to make another (there's a trend with previous projects of HAVING to make several more immediately after the first one).
|This one is a little longer than the first and the joining of the seams are overlapping instead of one tucked into the other.|
|This pinafore is reversible with solid yellow on the inside but she likes the flowers so the flowers are on the outside!|
